Forbes lists richest digital currency owners

New York-based media giant Forbes released the first-ever cryptocurrency billionaire list in its February issue, ranking the richest digital currency holders across the globe.

The list named the wealthiest people in the cryptocurrency world based on estimated holdings of coins, post-tax profits from trading, and stakes in crypto-businesses.

“Our first-ever Crypto Rich list provides a snapshot of a pivotal moment, part of the transparency needed to pull crypto away from its provenance as an unknown currency,” chief content officer at Forbes Media Randall Lane said.

Ripple’s founder Chris Larsen topped the list with a net fortune of $7.5 billion to $8 billion from cryptocurrency trading, including $5.2 billion from ripple tokens alone.
